Diary of a SAHM – Day 15

Diary of a SAHM – Day 15

We visited another library this weekend. This time we went to Seberang Jaya State Library. *happy* I think I’ve fallen in love with Penang public libraries.

Good to see that all the facilities were fully utilized.

What do I like about the libraries here?

  1. Easy registration: Just go to the counter with your IC and you can get registered on the spot. You don’t even have to fill in any form.
  2. The annual membership fee is only RM2 for adults and RM1 for children. As a member, you can borrow up to 4 books, 1 magazine and 1 media each time for two weeks. You can call them if you need to renew.
  3. You can borrow and return books at any of the libraries. For example, I borrowed books from the Simpang Ampat Town Library last week and returned them here. They even have mini libraries in shopping complexes (AEON Jusco and Komtar). Here’s a list of the state, branch and town libraries in Penang:
